Experiments with Shibori/Indigo Workshop, with Erin Zimmer

Getting there
4610 MAGAZINE ST., New Orleans, LA

Shibori/Indigo Workshop with Erin Zimmer Designing, folding, creating magic! The ancient Japanese art of Shibori presents an infinite number of ways to bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress cloth. Each variation of fold and stitch results in a different pattern. Each method is used not only to achieve a certain result but also to work in harmony with the type of cloth used. Learn the basics of this unique fabric design with indigo dye on cotton and silk. In this class you will learn three different techniques:: - Arashi Pole Wrapping- Itajime style- Hand-bound Spiderweb You will then be free to combine, explore and design your own shibori creations. You will design, dye and take home fabulous woven cotton fabric, rayon, cotton voile, and try your hand at these techniques with 1 yard of cotton jersey fabric to take home (make a skirt, top or scarf). All materials (fabrics, dyes, etc.) supplied for this class. You are welcome to bring any cotton, silk or rayon fabrics of your own to dip into the dye vat. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN GOOD RUBBER GLOVES!! REMEMBER to wear your "play clothes", as dyes may splash a bit! And, bring a sack lunch and beverage. STANDARD POLICIES: Class attendees receive a 15% discount on all class supply purchases!
